De Facto (The Mars Volta, Etc.) To Reunite This Year


De Facto, the short-lived dub offshoot of The Mars Volta/At The Drive In duo of Omar Rodríguez-López & Cedric Bixler-Zavala, will return for their first live show in decades this year. While short on details at the moment, the group are expected to return to the stage for this year’s SXSW events in Austin, TX.

That set will coincide with a screening of documentary on the aforementioned pair, ‘Omar & Cedric: If This Ever Gets Weird‘. An exact schedule is still pending. There’s also no word yet on who will replace the band’s late members Isaiah “Ikey” Owens and Jeremy Ward for this performance.
